Step Off: Noon
Out in the streets for the biggest Pride celebration in the world!
The first March was held in 1970 and has since become an annual civil rights demonstration. Over the years, its purpose has broadened to include recognition of the fight against AIDS and to remember those we have lost to illness, violence and neglect.
The March is a celebration of our lives and our community. In 2016, we were joined by over 350 unique marching contingents, representing a vast array of nonprofits, community organizations, corporate partners, small businesses, political candidates and activists! With over 80 floats making the trek down Fifth Avenue, last year’s March was one of the largest and most exciting in history.
We’re proud to announce our 2017 Grand Marshals!
- The American Civil Liberties Union
- Brooke Guinan
- Krishna Stone
- Geng Le

Don’t miss, for the first time in NYC Pride history, a live broadcast of the 2017 NYC Pride March on ABC7 from 12pm – 3pm on June 25th.
Viewing The March is free and open to the public. No tickets necessary.
